Common cosmetic problems

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when oil and dead skin cells get trapped in the pit of the hair follicle. Bacteria then begins to multiply and the area becomes inflamed producing pimples, blackheads and whiteheads on the face and upper body. Acne affects 80% of the population at some time between the age of 12 and 44; making it the most commonly treated skin condition. Although acne affects more than 20 million teenagers, it is appearing in adults in increasing numbers. Severe acne can cause serious cosmetic problems, which often leads to emotional stress and low self-esteem.

Hair and scalp problems

Common problems affecting the hair and scalp include hair loss, infections, and disorders causing itching and scaling. Hair loss (alopecia) is a frequent concern for both men and women. Even though normal shedding of hair is natural, the excessive loss of hair can lead to baldness or hair becomes thin over the entire scalp. Sudden and temporary loss of a large amount of hair may be related to the aftereffect of an illness or recent delivery of a baby (telogen effluvium).Certain diseases (eg: thyroid problems, diabetes, and lupus), medicines, or poor nutrition may also cause hair loss.

Infections of the scalp include bacterial infection of hair follicles (folliculitis), infestation of head lice (pediculosis capitis), and fungal infection of scalp, ringworm (tinea capitis). Itching and excessive flaking of the scalp is seen with both dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis) and psoriasis.
